Barleria cristata, commonly known as Philippine violet, is a dense, upright, hairy-stemmed, subtropical, evergreen subshrub in the acanthus family that typically matures to 3-4’ tall with a spread to 2-3’ wide. It is native from northern India and Myanmar (Burma) to southern China and Southeast Asia. Elliptic to narrow-ovate to oblong leaves (to 4” long and 2” wide) are dark green above and pale green beneath. Funnel-shaped, 2-inch long flowers (pink, purple, white, or mauve with white stripes) bloom in axillary spikes on new growth over a long flowering season from September to December plus mid-spring (May). Flowers are followed by seedpods.


Planting & Caring -

Best growth typically occurs in dry to medium moisture well-drained soils in full sun to light shade. Although drought-tolerant, shrubs prefer moderate but even soil moisture. Best flowering occurs with regular applications of fertilizer. Propagate by seed or stem/tip cuttings. Shrubs self sow in the landscape. Prune to the desired shape. Cut back stems in spring (sometimes to the ground) to promote bushy rounded growth.
